This is gypsy. When I bought her I was told she was pure arab. I was also told she was well trained, and I KNOW that wasn't true (thankfully that didn't really matter to me).
Shes obviously the rose grey in this picture :). The picture isn't that great but there are some more on her horse page that might help out a little bit more. Theres also some more on my photobucket page at Pictures by Rowzy - Photobucket

She looks like a purebred to me, but you just never really know unless she has papers somewhere. Cute little horse.

She looks purebred to me, too.

How old is she? She looks young.

If she's not registered, what a shame.

She is about 9 now, the pictures with the warmblood mare in them are from last summer, but the rest of the pictures I have up on photobucket and on here are from atleast 1 year ago, most of them are older then that even, and she didn't really start to fill out until last year.

A lot of Arabians look juvenile for quite awhile.

Casper is 12 this year, and has finally lost that 'babyish' look. He now looks like a grown up horse. He's starting to act like one too, thank goodness. I thought his brain was never going to catch up! :wink:

Lis, she won't stay that color. She'll eventually go completely grey/white. She may even be fleabitten.

Casper was a lovely charcoal grey with black legs, mane, and tail when I got him. He's now a fleabitten grey with a white mane and tail.

Dark, rose, and dappled greys always go white. It's how the greying gene works.

Such a shame, it's such a lovely colour. Same with dapples, shame they can't be frozen in that colour. Ah well, grey Arabs are gorgeous anyways.

She dapples out every summer, as you can see in that picture. Then she sheds out the white and gets darker every winter, but I know she will grey out eventually.

Yes it is. :)

Rowzy - oh my is she ever a pretty pretty girl. She looks almost exactly like on of our HG Esquire+ daughters here (go to our site on the foals and also sales page-look for GA E-Vakha). As a long time breeder of Purebred Arabians, my vote is that in fact she is a Purebred. If you tell me a bit about her story before you got her as much as you know, I might just be able to help you truly identify her. One good thing about finding out who the grays are that is a bit helpful. In order for her to be a gray, genetically she must have had at least one gray parent. I will look forward to hearing from you. Email me (from website) direct.
